Mrs. Sarah Lawson, BS

Mrs. Sarah Lawson, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Lawson previously taught kindergarten for four years. "One of my goals in teaching is to help your child feel successful at his present level and to encourage him to improve. Throughout the lessons, we talk about simple yet extremely important concepts, such as ‘God made me special,’ and ‘God gave me the Bible.’ I enjoy talking about these things with the children through the lessons. I wanted to be a teacher from the time I was a little girl, and I’m thankful to the Lord for letting me teach your child through this Distance Learning program."


Mrs. Sherri Vick, BS

Mrs. Sherri Vick, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningSherri Vick previously taught various elementary and junior high grades. "I like to look at the picture as a whole—to relate one subject to another so that the child can see how God’s plan fits together. I want the child to want to learn, so the lessons have to be fun. Hands-on is the best way, so I don’t want the student to just watch, but participate too! One of my goals is that, after watching the lessons, your child will continue in the things he has learned and develop lifelong learning skills that he can use both now and in the future."


Mrs. Debra Overly, BS, MS

Mrs. Debra Overly, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Overly, a mother of three, has experience teaching several elementary grades. "I want to encourage each child to look forward to learning each day and also to provide sufficient practice and review activities to help alleviate mom’s workload. Most importantly, I want to present Christ in each subject that I teach. Each child should hear the gospel and then see in a very practical way how it can change a sinner."


Mrs. Jennifer Cox, BS

Mrs. Jennifer Cox, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Cox, who previously taught third grade and worked for the BJU Press, continues teaching elementary grades for BJU Press Distance Learning. "Being the mother of three children is quite an education in itself. Dealing with my own children gives me insight into the minds and hearts of young children. I want each child who finishes [a] BJU Press Distance Learning grade to come away with a very sound, excellent education. One way I try to do this is by making each lesson clear and interesting so that the student can grasp the objectives and build on previous knowledge. I want to inspire children to love learning and to understand and believe that only the Christian who trusts God and obeys His Word will live a life filled with blessing and reward."


Mrs. Evanna Walker, BS

Mrs. Evanna Walker, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Walker has eight years’ experience teaching first grade at Bob Jones Elementary School. “My first love is to teach a child to read-primarily so that he can read God’s Word for himself and share it with others. He should be able to appreciate what he reads, draw conclusions, and make value judgments to become a thinker.”


Mrs. Ruth Nason, BS

Mrs. Ruth Nason, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Nason has taught on the elementary level as well as on the high school level. She believes teaching children is one of the most rewarding jobs. "The reward comes when you get feedback from students communicating to you that they understand. The best part is to see the growth in their lives, not only intellectually but, more important, spiritually. It is a wonderful privilege to be able to teach for BJU Press Distance Learning."

Rated 5 out of 5 by my son was bored with english, now he loves it. the distance program helps him tremendously. My son is eager to learn and the distance program made it enjoyable again! November 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Curriculum I love this Curriculum. I have used Abeka in the past. I have one 3rd grader and can't wait until next year to start m kindergartener!! September 10, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Curriculum, hard time completing all subjects This is great curriculum. I the only issue we have had, is getting everything done. At this age I am finding my daughter still needs me to help her complete the assignments and stay on task. Seems to be a longer school day than what we are used to, but no longer than public school hours. We will most likely continue using BJU. October 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good review during summer Very comprehensive and having easy access to the answer key was a big plus. 2 pgs a day was all I asked for and it was a breeze to help when needed. August 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by We love this curriculum My son just finished using 3rd grade DVD Distance Learning and he absolutely loved it! He worked independently and really enjoy the video lessons. The teachers are great and kept his attention throughout the whole school year. I noticed how much effort was put into making these lessons. They make learning fun!. We did get a couple of scratched dvds but we call customer service and they immediately sent replacements that we got within a couple of days so he didn't really get behind at all. My other son was using the dvds as well for 2nd grade and he loved them too and he did not have any problems with scratched dvds at all. I like the high academic standards, the colorful books, and how easy it is for the parents to prepare the material for the next day class. We highly recommend this product. June 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Overall Excellent There are some hiccups. It doesn't seem like the writer of this text is completely in tune with what the kids learned last year. There were a few activities which were definitely not for kids who had finished 3rd. However...for the most part, it was right on point. We made this a part of our summertime routine. We read 2 chapters in a chapter book...completed the vacation station...and spent a half hour learning to type each week day. And then....freedom! It was a great way to keep her skills sharp and also to not lose momentum for next year. July 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Love the Vacation Stations! This is my third summer using Vacation Station (my twins are going in to 4th grade). I love using this resource. It is very easy to use and only takes (at the most) 30 mins a day to do the 2 pages per day. It keeps my boys sharp and they enjoy the stories and checking off the reading each day as well. I would highly suggest this as a way to help them no "forget" over the summer. June 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fourth year using Distance Learning We have used BJU Distance Learning since kindergarten. My daughter loves the videos since she's a visual learner. Mrs. Vick is her favorite teacher! My only complaint is that the DVD's are becoming a real problem being scratched up beforehand and we can't watch a series of classes. It is happening more frequently over the years. Given the low cost of a DVD and the price paid for DL, in my opinion, it should be all new DVDs. As much as I love DL, this may be a consideration against using it in the future. Updating some of the older videos would be a huge plus too! January 20, 2015
